  • 1 clove of garlic, pressed

  • Salt & pepper to taste

  • Lemon juice to taste


  1. Drain the liquid from the Garbanzo Beans

  2. Pulverize beans in blender or Cuisinart (original recipe said to put beans through a fine meat grinder...this is from an old family cookbook)

  3. Add Tahini sauce, garlic

(Eggplant appetizer)


  • 1 large eggplant

  • lemon juice to taste

  • ½ clove of garlic, pressed

  • 1 Tbl olive oil

  • 3 Tbl Tahini sauce (sesame seed paste)

  • ½ tsp salt


  1. Cook eggplant directly over flame, turning over on all sides until soft or bake in oven at 500 degrees until soft (again remember this is from an old Lebanese collection of my families recipes so they weren’t big on specifics).

  2. Split eggplant open and scoop out the inside pulp together with all the juice.

  3. Combine Olive oil, garlic, tahini sauce, salt and lemon juice

  4. Add eggplant and mix well.

Serve and enjoy!
